Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been booked by authorities in Houston and released on bond following his indictment on charges of injury to a child.
Peterson flew to Houston early this morning, was let in to the Montgomery County Jail through a side entrance, and was booked and had his mug shot taken, according to USA Today.
After posting $15,000 bond, Peterson was released.
Peterson is accused of striking his 4-year-old son with a switch in May, causing cuts and bruises. His attorney released a statement acknowledging that Peterson had spanked his son and adding, “It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.”
The Vikings have announced that Peterson will not play on Sunday.
